WITI Launches New Global Executive Network

WITI Global Executive Network (GEN) Provides Executive Women With a Platform for Strategic Collaboration, Facilitated Peer Interaction, Outreach and Professional Development

SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwire - September 12, 2007) - WITI (Women in Technology International), the nation's leading professional organization for tech-savvy women, is proud to announce the inception of the WITI Global Executive Network (GEN), which will launch during an invite only networking reception on September 28th from 4PM to 6PM during their WITI's annual Silicon Valley Conference.

WITI GEN was created on the principle that women have an incredible opportunity to leverage one another as trusted advisors and to work collaboratively to advance their collective role in business and technology. WITI GEN provides an exceptional platform for leading female executives to leverage their powerful positions to incite change within their own companies as well as within the business community at large.

"These remarkable women serve as role models for all WITI members and technology and businesses professionals alike," said Carolyn Leighton, CEO, chairwoman and founder of WITI. "This networking reception is an excellent opportunity for executives to meet like-minded women with similar motivation to inspire and innovate."

For busy executives who want to connect quickly and privately with their peers, members say that GEN's concierge model fits their needs. Members are also passionate about outreach initiatives such as the need to encourage young girls to consider careers in business and technology. Unique outreach initiatives like this are particularly meaningful for women who have made it to the top.

The WITI GEN reception is a private event held by invitation only. Members of the press are invited to attend or for more information please send your request to:

The WITI GEN reception occurs during the "Women and Technology Summit" at the Hyatt Regency Santa Clara September 27 - 29, 2007. Individual tickets and tables are still available.
